2ND ANNUAL ESG ASSET OWNERS SUMMIT
Join us at CFA Society Washington, DC’s 2nd Annual ESG Summit and hear from asset owners, asset managers, thought leaders, academics and researchers leading the charge on environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing trends. This 1-day Summit will take place during the week of the Spring Meetings of the Boards of Governors of the World Bank Group (WBG) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington, DC.
Since 2011, The Governance & Accountability Institute, has tracked the percentage of companies in the S&P 500® Index that publish sustainability reports, reporting dramatic growth over the past decade. As of 2018, 86% of S&P-listed companies published reports, compared to only 20% in 2011. This emphasis on reporting is in direct response to investors, who are increasingly calling for ESG as a guidepost. Learn about the future of the sustainable investing industry at our 2nd Annual ESG Asset Owners Summit.
The agenda includes 20+ speakers and multiple panel sessions that will engage and enlighten attendees through a mix of discussions and Q&A. You’ll gain new global perspectives, insights into unique challenges and network with industry leaders.
Additional speakers will be announced as they are confirmed
